Last Updated September 07, 2007
Why am I getting the following?
Log message on machines when trying to download packages: Error while downloading package: Package suspended (-2147209210)
You will get this suspended message under the following circumstances.
A higher priority download is in action, such as a sequential package.
A blockout is in place.
This package is busy downloading to a different client.
Dependency has not been reached.
Scheduled maintenance for the server.
This causes a time delay on when the client will next try to request the information. On resumption, it backs off exponentially, the first time for 3 minutes, then for 6 minutes, then 12 minutes, and so on.
Note: Other processes or maintenance windows could also be interfering with the Software Update Cycle allowing the client to download the updates. Ensure that the Software Update Cycle is scheduled for a time when it is least strenuous on the Notification Server.
